About Braeside Country Cottage
Braeside Country Cottage is located near Tarkastad in the Eastern Cape. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this private guest farm which is only a three hour drive from both Port Elizabeth and East London.
The cottage is situated on the banks of the Tarkastad River and is surrounded by Lucerne lands. The working sheep and cattle farm is at the foot of the Winterberg Mountain range; making it ideal for hikers, walkers, cyclists and fishermen. However, if hunting is more your game, we have guided safaris for more than 20 years in the Eastern Cape and beyond and are confident that we have the infrastructure and experience to make your stay a memorable one!
